Genesis and Rootsfinder: How to import Genesis Tier 1 Triangulation into Rootsfinder

Currently this method is outdated due to Rootsfinder has updated their tool to allow Genesis triangulation be imported.

 

Rootsfinder is a pretty useful tool to visualize our DNA Gedmatch matches relationship. Currently, it is in beta version and it is only compatible with Gedmatch classic Tier 1 triangulation. Genesis Gedmatch Tier 1 triangulation results are not compatible with Rootsfinder.

Recently, I manage to fix this problem editing the HTML file. Follow the next steps to make Genesis Tier 1 Triangulation compatible with Rootsfinder:

  1. Download Notepad++
  2. Save the Genesis Tier 1 Triangulation result in your computer. The file’s extension should be “.html”
  3. Open the Tier 1 Triangulation HTML file with Notepad++ and follow the next steps
